Relaxing_by_the_seaGo Sri Lanka: Sri Lanka gave us the word serendipity. Now back on the tourist map at the end of two decades of strife, it's a place where a short train journey brings you from ivory beaches to lush hill country, writes TOM FARRELL

IT IS TEMPTING to think of Sri Lanka as little more than an island offshoot of India. It appears as such on the map: a precious stone in the Indian Ocean, just east of the point where its huge neighbour tapers into the tropical seas.
